Looking For Board Members

Sep 27, 2019 Kruz

If you are interested in becoming a board member this message is for you!

As a trustee you'll be serving the community; you'll be doing something worthwhile, and you'll be part of something good.

The key qualification for a library trustee is commitment to the library. Those of us who are serving as board members are convinced that the library plays an important role in fostering life-long learning and enhancing the vitality of the community.

The library board is a governing board, which means that the solutions that trustees arrive at in consultation with staff are implemented without the need to gain approval from another body. Our meetings themselves are positive and productive.

Library board trustees shall:

  • Ensure Effective management and operation of the Public Library
  • Promote and encourage community use of the services, resources, and programs provided by the library.
  • Believe in the importance of libraries and commitment to the Library's Vision and Mission Statement, Goals, and Objectives.
  • Be available to attend monthly board meetings
  • Represent the interests, concerns and attitudes of your community

As a trustee you'll have a chance to learn, and to apply some of the knowledge and skills that you already have.

Submit your letter of interest to the Grimshaw Municipal Library Board at 

Box 588, Grimshaw, AB T0H 1W0

Submission deadline is November 15th, 2019
